If memory serves me correctly it is just disconnecting the rods and I think there were a few large springs also. If you tear it down that far you may as well check pulley bearings too!

Check proper belt routing. These models are a little tricky. Also check tensioner spring.

How to replace drive belt on sears 247.28904


If you have an Owner's Manual,it will inform you,in the Manual how to go about removing and replacing a tractor drive belt. There is a decal under the left or right foot board,informing the operator how to install the belt correctly. This is a long belt.that runs from the pulley on the Transaxle to the upper pulley on the bottom of the motor. This could be a hard repair to do,if the mower deck is installed. I have removed and replaced this belt,by lowering the mower deck all the way down. I would recommend,that you remove the deck,much easier.to replace the drive belt. This is also is in the Owner's Manual.under," How to remove the mower deck". Hope this answer your question. Sincerely,Brad Locke DTD. 12/03/15

I have a Sears Garden Tractor with a 48" mower deck. By working in long, thick grass I broke the mower belt -- not the one that transmits power from the engine, but the belt that sits in a pulley on...


I believe that tensioner pully has to be loosend up and moved.
Here are the instructions for this.
  • Place the deck in the lowest position using the hydraulic piston (if applicable) or the manual cutting-height adjuster.

  • 2

    Remove the deck-to-PTO belt from the PTO by releasing tension on the idler-arm pulley. This is a spring-loaded handle that turns in only one direction by hand and relieves the tension on the belt. Slip the deck-to-PTO belt off the PTO pulley after the tension is relieved.

  • 3

    Remove the deck from underneath the mower or tractor.

  • 4

    Locate any belt stops and loosen them with the ratchet wrench and proper socket. Belt stops are located on the deck and are the small metal brackets that guide and secure the belt to the pulleys so it will not jump off when under heavy use, or stretch from normal wear.

  • 5

    Remove any pulley covers by removing the retaining screws using the ratchet wrench and a socket.

  • 6

    Loosen the idler-pulley retaining bolt (located on the underside of the mower deck) to replace the deck-to-PTO belt. Removing the bolt is not necessary. Loosen the pulley enough to wiggle the belt free from the pulley and remove and replace the belt.

  • 7

    Remove any arbor covers (if applicable) that conceal the arbor pulleys by removing the retaining screws with the ratchet wrench and a socket to replace the mower arbor belt.

  • 8

    Locate the tensioner pulley on the mower arbor belt to replace it. Loosen the tensioner pulley bolt enough to slide it and release tension from the belt. Remove the belt from the arbor pulleys and replace it.

  • 9

    Slide the tensioner pulley back leaving about 1/2-inch of play in the belt and tighten the bolt. Reverse the procedure to put the rest of the mower deck back together and reinstall on the mower or tractor.

    Mower deck clutch cable removal (model 917.28722). Detail provided in manual does not seem to match product. Need to remove this in order to remove deck and replace belt. Belt has squealed since new.


    You should not need to remove the deck or the clutch cable just to change the belt.

    • ensure mower clutch lever is in the off position
    • lift the front of the tractor approx 24 or more inches.
    • lower the mower deck as far as it will go
    • locate & remove the cotter pin from the right (discharge) side mower lift arm where it attaches to the rear of the mower
    • release the lift arm from the mower deck to allow it to drop (it will hang from the other 3 points)
    You should now have plenty of clearance to change the belt. Remove the belt from the engine pulley first and replace the new belt on the engine pulley last that will make it easier to change the belt.

    If this is helpful please vote yes, Thank You!!

    What is the easiest way to remove the deck to change mower belt.


    Your listing doesn't specify the model number of your tractor. But I found a users manual for a 24HP model 917.28936 here and perhaps this is yours, or similar.
    This model uses a single mower drive belt (some tractors use two separate ones) and you do have to remove the mower deck to replace the belt. The procedure is in the manual. Hope that helps.

    I am trying to find out how to replace the mower belt of my 2006 LT2000 23hp Craftsman lawnmower


    Replacing the belt is easiest if you drop the deck. There are roughly 6 pins you must pull (refer to sticker on deck) including the engagement cable. Pull the deck from under the tractor and remove the plastic pulley shield from the left side. Remove the belt and replace the same as you took off and re-attach the deck to the mower.

    Install belt on toro mower model 70041


    For removing/replacing the deck belt, the general method is:
    1. turn off engine, remove key and set parking brake
    2. disengage blade by putting blade engage lever into off (disengaged) position
    3. lower the cutting deck to the lowest position (closest to the ground)
    4. relieve the belt tension (depending on the model, use a 3/8 inch ratchet set to tighten in the square hole of the idler bracket)
    5. remove and replace the belt
    NOTE: it's not necessary to completely remove the cutting deck.

    Useful diagrams for removing the cutting deck, http://216.213.143.2/ProAuthor/ManProc.cfm?ManualID=425&ProcID=14794

    For deck belt diagrams, http://216.213.143.2/ProAuthor/ManProc.cfm?ManualID=425&ProcID=14796

    If the transmission drive belt needs to be replaced, several components must be removed and special tools (i.e. air/impact wrench) used in order to change the tractor's transmission drive belt. See an Authorized Toro Service Dealer to have your drive belt replaced.

    It's fun to ride around the yard on the mower, watching scrubby grass (and weeds) turn into trimmed lawn. However, when the grass looks as bad after you mow as it did before, or the mower doesn't want to start, riding mowers aren't as much fun. That's when it's time to put on your Fix-It Club hat and have some more fun.

    A riding lawn mower is a gas-powered machine for cutting grass. The engine turns a rotating blade that cuts the top off the grass blades to a specified height. The operator sits atop the mower on a tractor-type seat with speed and height controls nearby. Riding mowers also can be used to pull small utility carts for other yard jobs.

    To remove the mower deck:
    1. Make sure that the parking brake is locked.
    2. Place scrap lumber under the front and rear of the deck.
    3. Use the deck lever to lower the deck.
    4. Remove attachments from the deck.
    5. Remove the blade drive belt from the front pulley.
    6. Remove the front and rear deck fasteners, following instructions in your owner's manual.
    7. Use the deck lever to raise the deck.
    8. Remove the scrap lumber.
    9. Remove the deck from under the mower.
    To adjust the drive belt:
    1. Remove the belt from the large idler pulley.
    2. Remove the belt from the adjustable idler pulley.
    3. Carefully remove the spring-loaded large idler pulley.
    4. Loosen the adjustable idler pulley and move it slightly toward the rear of the mower to tighten it[md]or move it toward the front to loosen it—and retighten the pulley.
    5. Replace the belt.
    6. Check belt tension and readjust as needed.
